Saul Good Gift Co.

Saul Good Gift Co. helps you build meaningful business relationships with thoughtfully curated gift baskets. These award winning gifts gets devoured in minutes, but the impression they leave lasts considerably longer.

This gift basket company refuses to package thoughtless “stuff” in grandiose and wasteful packaging. Instead, the contents of Saul Good gifts come with their own stories that together form a much more meaningful and memorable experience.

This company was created as a way to make a positive difference through business. Each corporate gift demonstrates the delicious beauty of sustainability, local purchasing and social responsibility.  The recycled cardboard gift boxes feature hand drawn maps of local Canadian cities. The products are all locally handmade and the gifts are assembled by a social enterprise that creates jobs for adults with developmental disabilities.
